Tendu White WineMADE BY MATTHIASSON WINE IN NAPA, CALIFORNIA
Stephen Matthiasson might be best known for complex, innovative reds, but that only made us more excited to try this approachable, exciting white now in its second vintage.
The wine is made from 100% Vermentino grapes, a traditional Italian varietal, grown with organic practices at the Windmill Vineyard in Yolo County, California. We were already fans of Vermentino, and we're obsessed with this zingy and refreshing interpretation, full of bright citrus and herbal notes to go alongside ripe pear.
We'd like to drink this all day every day, but only 544 cases were produced, so odds are it'll be long gone a lot sooner than we'd like.
Consider yourself warned: Get it while you can!
Tip of the Tongue
Serve this light, bright wine with all your favorite salads. Just be careful – lemon juice and vinegar almost always clash with wine. (We love making a vinaigrette with verjus, pressed unripe grape juice, rather than vinegar. But we digress.)
